‘WE NEED CHANGE’ Furious Harry Maguire slams social media giants for making it ‘too easy’ for vile racists online

The Sun says: The Three Lions ace rounded on the likes of Twitter and Facebook for doing too little to kick abusers off their platforms.

He said the law must be changed so companies have to link accounts to a person’s real identity — making it easier for police to track down and arrest those spewing hateful messages.

Speaking out after the Euros racism storm, he said the murky world of the internet must urgently change.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the Manchester United centre-back said he was sadly not surprised at the horrific racist abuse hurled at his teammates.

He said: “Something needs to be done. The companies need to verify every account.

“It is too easy to troll and abuse. To be racist is just too easy to be done and get away with.”
